everyone!!! Welcome to Meg’s Garden.
here and this time I would like to share two cards with you.
Although these cards were made with papers
from the same collection and were constructed in a very similar way, they look
very different from each other. The
papers used are from the Dreaming in the Meadows Mini Pack. I’ll place a list of the products used at
the bottom of this post.
is the first card.
used white cardstock for the base and layered the papers with some netting in
between to give it a softer look. Then
machine stitched around the edges.
corner was curled over and held down by a piece of bling cut from the Daisy
Silver Trim to which I’ve added a few beads for some added colour. I just love that lace and had to have a
little piece peeking out from the edge.
stunning flower is the Ivory Heirloom 6.5cm which is, of course, available from
Meg’s Garden as is the gorgeous lace. The
two die cuts underneath are Marianne Creatables’ Frame & Swirls Die and
Couture Creations’ Starburst Doily Die.
The starburst die was trimmed a little to fit in with the design. The leaves were cut with my Silhouette and
edged with white puff paint.
wooden flourish was coloured with Versa Color Olive and I added another piece
from the Daisy Silver Trim with the beads in the centre.
inside was lined with two more sheets from the same collection. These papers are so pretty you really don’t
need to add anything to them. I love
you can see I’ve used two different sheets of paper here but they are still
from the same collection and from the same paper pack. The base of the card is a pastel pink
cardstock and I’ve cut it slightly smaller than the previous card.
used the same two dies as before but without trimming this time. Then the oval shape and the banner were
placed on top. The oval was cut out with
Couture Creations’ Oval Nesting Dies and the banner was cut out by hand and
layered with the same paper. The floral
sprigs were cut with the Honey Blossom Sprig Die from Memory Box.
gorgeous flower is the Ivory Primula to which I’ve just added some autumn
of the sprigs.
just used a couple of strips of the paper for the inside this time and edged
them with Martha Stewart’s Doily Border Punch.
And there you are!! Two cards made with
basically the same materials and yet they look very different. When you find a design that you love, you
can use it again and again and by just changing the paper or adding or changing
a few elements, your cards will look very different and no-one would know they
are basically the same design.
